This work is part of a series that takes the rules of composition found in the style of the nature morte and uses them as a method for evoking emotion and narrative. By using computer-generated imagery I have generated a hyper-realistic depiction of a post-communist scene located in Sofia, Bulgaria.

In this still life, I have specifically focused on communicating a feelin g of disgust. My intention is to make the viewer feel disgusted by observing the unusual interactions that occur between the objects in the composition. In order to achieve this feeling of abjection, I have experimented with manipulating the object’s physical attributes out of the ordinary realm of understanding.
